Mentalist, illusionist and performance artist Scott Silven joins Rob Bailis to talk Scotland, whisky and mentalism during The Journey's highly anticipated run. We recommend that you see the show before this event!
Scott Silven is a modern-day marvel like no other. As an acclaimed illusionist, mentalist and performance artist, Silven pushes the boundaries of his craft by creating stylish, smart and uniquely immersive performances, on both stage and screen, which mesmerize audiences across the globe.
Hailed by Vogue as a “world-renowned mentalist,” his work has been described as “a marvel” (The New York Times), “mesmerizing” (Town and Country), “truly astonishing” (The Daily Beast), “unforgettable” (Entertainment Weekly) and theatre that “wows everyone” (The New Yorker) through a combination of “elegance, sheer mind power and profound philosophical insight” (Manhattan Digest).
Following two major sell-out runs in New York and an extensive tour on the international stage, including headline engagements with leading arts organizations such as Melbourne International Arts Festival, Sydney Festival, Stanford Live, Luminato Festival, Seattle Theater Group and Krannert Center For The Performing Arts, Silven now introduces his latest experience—The Journey. The Journey continues Silven’s theatrical objectives—not only in orchestrating an awe-inspiring experience, but a production that leads his audiences to a place that suggests untold possibilities, a place that challenges perceptions: a place that allows them to look at the world, and themselves, in an extraordinary way.
